Had a few more of these blank Multum in Parvo's from Lulubell/Grody Shogun to play with this week. This one was inspired by the latest viral Pug video circulating this week, Pugronomicon (and therefore being posted, text and emailed to my wife daily...lol). Micro run, painted by me, $35 each + shipping via Lulubell Toys. $5 from every Pug sold via Lulubell gets donated to Arizona Pug Rescue, so pick up one of these evil do-gooders at www.lulubelltoys.com today. UPDATE: SOLD OUT - thanks to all who grabbed one!
Fun custom I did this week on the Popsoda Fog white vinyl blank. I am kicking myself for not getting more of these white blanks when they were available...I have so much fun painting these! Got a new fine line Iwata gun this week since my older one is almost completely shot, and wanted to see what it could do! UPDATE: Sold, off to his new home. Thank you!
Had some fun this week painting some of Lulubell's Multum in Parvo. Obvious nod to one of my favorites, RTJ! UPDATE: NOW sold out! Thanks to all who purchased!
It's always fun to paint the amazing creations that Grody Shogun comes up with, so I was stoked to get my hands on these 3 Bella beauties! Her sweet face just seemed to lend herself to some innocent darkness. Three only, up for grabs at Lulubell Toys! UPDATE: SOLD OUT!
Picked up this rad Mutant Cop at Dcon this year from Violence Toy. This guy is such an amazing sculpt! So much gory detail to paint, I love the big size (12"/30cm.) and the hat & billy club are removable which is a great touch! Up for grabs now in my web store.

Another dude I have been fortunate enough to cross paths with in this crazy world is Adam from Copasquat Toys! Adam is a quiet and humble guy who is so amazingly talented that he really needs to be on your radar. Everything Adam does has such an amazing quality and attention to detail. His sculpts are super clean and well thought out, with tons of detail that fit each figure so perfectly. Adam is a class act. In his art and as a human. I love hanging out with him at conventions and we keep in touch the rest of the year, so I was super stoked (and honored) that I got to do a run of his 4 newest sculpts in the Fumetsu series (L-R, Top to B): Erewon, Kurzweil, Vinge & Neumann! These were a clear pink marble base, and I added some shake-action LED's into the inners. I love so much about each one of these figures, and tried my best to give them a lot of TLC, bright accents, and a little bastardized nod to old school classic paint apps all in one. Release info coming soon, follow @copasquattoys (or me) on IG for release details!

One of the seriously coolest guys I've met in this crazy vinyl world is BlurbleOne. He's one of those people who is not only an insanely talented, jack of all trades artist who just seems to be proficient no matter what medium they work in, but he's just an all around good guy. I can't imagine anyone ever saying anything about the dude, he's really that awesome. Kind and humble, always positive, amazing family man, caring friend. Both of our lives are so busy that we really don't get to cross paths very often, but I am always so stoked when we do and am so grateful to have gotten to know Mike. He was the guy who happily gave me Airbrush 101 in my hot garage years ago & created the airbrush monster in me. For all of these reasons and more, I really wanted to do this custom justice, and so here's my birthday present paint job for him on a GID YouZha by KearJun (@kearjun on IG). I had all these plastic babies I've been saving for who knows what, and so this seemed the perfect companion for this guy :D Happiest of brithdays to you Mike! Go check out his site & support him,
Shub Zeroth is one of my favorite things on the planet to paint, so when the awesome dudes at Metacrypt hit me up to paint for them again, I was of course more than happy to oblidge. It's not only such an honor and priviledge to get to paint these, but design wise, I also just love every aspect of this figure and pour my heart into this guy each time I get my hands on him! It's been interesting to get to dabble in this crazy sofubi world when I can. How this one works is I'm usually presented with a concept to interpret, in ths case, an Apollo-astronaut colorway! These were a crisp white base vinyl, which can be a little intimidating to work with sometimes, and my first test version was a bit different than this one. After test 1 review, we discussed some tweaks, and above is what became the final version. Making someone else's vision a reality is always a cool but challenging experience because everyone involved has a different picture they an see in their head, but we have to work togther really closely to make both pictures end up as one. Shub is one that always seems to eventually click really well once we are there. Huge thank you to Brian & Justin for entrusting your baby to me yet again. Shub Zeroth will be up for grabs Friday, June 24th at 10am Pacific Time on the Meta-Cyrpt site here. UPDATE: SOLD OUT! Thank you to everyone who grabbed one.
It had been a while since I had time to paint on canvas, so I was itching to get back to it, and with the Media Blackout show I was invited to, I thought this would be the perfect tribute piece to jump back in with. For this show we were told to create a new piece, and not post pictures until after the opening. Funny thing in today's world. So here's my piece, the day after the opening! Admidst all the recent talents gone in 2016, Sean Price was a huge bummer for me, gone way too soon like all the others. We all have our heroes, our inspirations, our favorites. If you aren't familiar, here's a good place to start, and if you are familiar and are able, you can make a donation towards his wife and children's fund here.
You can see this piece in the month of June as a part of the Media Blackout gallery show at Lulubell Toys, or you can purchase via my website in the store section here!
